YMCA Instructors attend the ARISE Life Skills Instructor training in Miami!

On September 10, ARISE Master Trainer Joliett Vega-Klusevsek conducted a two hour workshop for 22 Miami, Florida area YMCA group instructors.  The workshop was well attended and the trainees were thrilled with the results!  As Joliett mentions: “They LOVE ARISE!”

When asked what they liked most about the workshop, some of the comments we heard from the trainees were:

  • The lesson plan. The training was great!
  • The different ways to create a lesson plan.
  • The ARISE Formula and how we got to express our own ideas. It was very helpful and gave us great ideas we can use with our own kids.
  • The training was very interactive and never boring.
  • The presenter was very knowledgeable in education and youth development.
  • I liked how it was group oriented.
  • It helped us to learn how to instruct the ARISE Life Skills curricula to our children. I believe this training would benefit any and every one that takes it.

Since ARISE was established in 1986 , it has trained and certified  almost 6,000 ARISE Life-Skills Group Facilitators who have taught nearly 6,000,000 documented hours of interactive ARISE Life Skills lessons for at-risk youth and teens across the United States and beyond.
